the “little owls” were created in Procreate and Grungetastic, the images you see here are taken from a crop of another artwork, called Cameo Girl and Owl Companion the owl in the original image really took on a life of it’s own as far as I was concerned and as soon as I’d finished it, I felt that it in itself should become another picture, with a smaller owl to accompany. I hope you like, I myself am totally taken with owls right now, not so much because they have become popular in iconic artistry, but because there is something eternally significant and special about them…..because they are extremely sensitive creatures who must live in the right conditions to survive, because they are very emotional creatures, I relate to them in a way perhaps only artists and those who have a deep appreciation for nature possibly can. Not to seem elitist, however! When you read about owls and their beautiful nature, you realise how special they are, in that they can only eat mice in order to maintain their health and vitality ….or that mice are the perfect food….that other things must also be just right for them. They mate for life (I think) and are so sensitive that even a slight injury or a perceived slight injury, can cause them to become so anxious that they die. Despite their obvious robustness and incredible abilities….they are delicate, sensitive types of creatures…and remind me very much of the ‘artist’….of ‘me’. x

    They do look so vulnerable here and sweet beyond words. I’ve learned something new, from your description, Karin.

  • aw thanks so much Frannie, I read a beautiful book about an injured baby owl that was raised by a human, and it taught me a lot about them :) x

    You also stay up at wee hours like they do :P (sorry had to say it xx). It is a lovely piece, and owls are such beautiful creatures. Hedwig in Harry Potter is perhaps one thing that brings out the beauty in them; especially when Harry and Hedwig and bonding.

    As far as cropping goes; god I know I’ve had moment looking at something I did and felt an element of it should be a piece alone; and the eyes and the character of the owls sure come out better here.

  • thanks so much Mui-Ling, I love how you said you’ve had the same thing happen, when you thought something should be a piece on it’s own…and yeah, unfortunately you are right about me being a night owl, I think a lot of artists are……there is something about the stillness after everyone else has closed their eyes and gone to sleep…..I find it the most exciting part of the day, creatively speaking, so it’s really hard to turn that around and get enough sleep, especially when you feel creative and wanting to stay up and put your ideas to the test :)))
